The MDM advantage: Creating insight from big data

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Jul 26, 2017
Business leaders are eager to harness the power of big data. However, as the opportunity increases, ensuring that source information is trustworthy and protected becomes exponentially more difficult.

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Jul 26, 2017
Every day, torrents of data inundate IT organizations and overwhelm the business managers who must sift through it all to glean insights that help them grow revenues and optimize profits.

Target Growth With Better Business Intelligence

Published By: Epicor     Published Date: Jul 06, 2017
It’s hard to make good decisions without good information. Having access to data, and the tools to quickly analyze that data, is essential. Without data, you are blind to how your business is performing and areas for improvement—all you have to go on is instinct. A robust business intelligence (BI) system can provide new insights to help steer your distribution organization clear of obstacles that impede growth—and toward the opportunities that enable it. A monthly report just doesn’t cut it anymore. You need real-time information, and if you’re running legacy software, it’s probably slowing you down.
